BARROW. OPENING OF THE RIFLE CLUB.- Last week the range of the Rifle Club was formally opened. A fairly good number of people assembled, including Mr. and Mrs. H. Lyle Smyth, Capt. Smyth, the Rev. H. A. and Mre Arnold, Dr. Foster, Mrs. Dennis, Mr. G. and Miss Maud Okell, Mr. and Mrs. C. New- port, Mr S. Cheers, Mr. W. Swindley. etc. The proceedings we-ie opened* by the Rector, who after a short speech asked Mrs. Lyle Smyth to open the range. This Mrs. Smyth did in a few appro- priate remarks, afterwards proceeding to fire the first shot, and, as a happy augury, hit the bull's eye. A vote of thanks to Mrs. Lyle Smyth was proposed by Dr. Foster, and was aocorded with lioarty cheers.—Mr. H. Lyle Smyth proposed a vote of thanks to the doctor, who has done the lion's share of the work in connection with the starting of the club —Mr. G. Okell seconded, and included the name of Mr. S. Cheers.—Shots wore afterwards fired by most of the ladies present, and they, under the direction of Sergt. Hobbins, shewed such skill as to cause the gentlemen to pause before exhibiting theirs; albeit these latter received a little encouragement in the shape of a bull's eye by the Rector. The club may now be said to be fairly on it,s way. The range has been passed by Capt. Leake, ana the club can now be affiliated to the N.R.A. A very encouraging fit-art- was made on Monday night, when, although ,it was raining in torrents, 21 members presented themselves for enrolment. Tho committee have been fortunate in securing tho services of Sorgt. Hobbiiio, of Hartfotrd, under whose energetic fmperintondcnco the shooting ought to reach a high standard. The rifle used is of the latest ser- vioa type, the B.S.A. It has been tested by tho sergeant, and found to answer perfectly. Some very fair practice was made by the members on Monday night, several bulls being recorded.
